Asian Foods Research in Progress, June 2008, contains short summaries of continuing projects as well as those that were completed during 2006-2007. The Asian Foods Program aimed to facilitate the development of an Asian food industry in Australia.
From July 2008, the Asian Foods Program forms the major part of RIRDC’s “World and Cultural Foods” sup-program, which sits within the New Plants Program. There are four sub-program objectives. These are:
Objective 1: Understanding consumer needs in both domestic and export markets
Objective 2: Communication and collaboration with industry
Objective 3: Improve crop productivity, sustainability and produce quality
Objective 4: Foster development of new products, both fresh and semi processed
This report is an addition to RIRDC’s diverse range of over 1800 research publications, which are available for viewing, downloading or purchasing online thorough our website:
